The Harrison Twins will play in Marshall County

With Huntington Prep and Andrew Wiggins already in the pool of teams scheduled to play in this year’s Marshall County Hoop Fest, you really don’t need any more reasons to pack up the kids and drive to Benton, KY. The opportunity to see Wiggins play in person is worth the drive alone. BUT, just in case you weren’t already sold on the event, the Hoop Fest organizers threw in the Harrison twins to sweeten the deal.

Per Chris Fisher at 247, Aaron and Andrew Harrison’s Travis High School team will play Louisville Ballard in the 2012 Marshall County Hoop Fest. We had already heard reports that the Richmond, TX high school would be participating in the event, but now it appears to be official.

You’ll have a hard time finding a better place to be in the state of Kentucky that weekend when the Harrison twins, Andrew Wiggins and several others — including Derek Willis, Cliff Alexander, and Xavier Rayan-Mathes — are under one roof in the Marshall Co. gymnasium.

Calipari and Antigua have already picked their seats.

    Well if you really want us to go, it would be nice to know the dates of the weekend you’re referring to.

    I hope that’s the case though #1, they’re set to announce at the end of October, that would be an awesome “we’re coming to UK” coming out party. The place would be rocking

    The entire schedule for this event was offered to Matt Jones nearly a month ago. This is old news,one of my relatives (wont’ say which) workes for Marshall Co. schools and helps put this event on every year. I have the entire schedule of games already as well as every possible UK player that will be there. Matt didn’t reply to me for some reason, I suppose he was to busy to find this interesting. To matt…your about a month late chump. If you want the full sch. post your email and I”ll get it to you within the next 24 hours

    20. Why would he need to? Cal can’t get a more perfect pitch than what he can show them on the wall of the new Lodge.
